Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (35 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Aww, c'mon -- it's not that bad!"
Sound: This is a matter of wide debate. The amp doesn't clean up perfectly, that's true. Now, that said, running 2x12 Greenbacks in an open Geezer Sound slant front cab plus a Vintage 30 and G12H in a closed-back Dr. Z "Z-Best" cab on the bottom, it's pretty damn impressive sounding to me. It needs a lot of dialing in. It has all these controls on it, all of which are entirely unnecessary and in fact work against the tone. That's all true. But I just found a place to leave them and just forget that thery're even there. Do I wish they weren't there? Yes. For this price, is that a show-stopper? Nope. Feature: It has too many features. Just a clean signal path with a volume and a tone stack is all that was needed. It would be a great amp at that point, and probably could be even less expensive than it already is. Ease of Use: Have to get past all the excess crapola. Once that's done, turn it on and off -- big whup. Quality: The fit and finish is fine. It's not a boutique item and no one would ever mistake it for one. But it looks nice enough. Is it rugged? I really don't know -- I'm not about to bang it around if I can avoid it. It doesn't strike me as fragile, but I'm guessing it isn't exactly bulletproof. Value: High marks here. I happened to pick up a B stock for a nice savings. But even at regular price, it's a good value for the money. I'd easily gig with this head if I ever ended up in a situation where such power was appropriate. I purchased it just to have it in stock for that purpose, but normally gig with 15W - 30W through 2 x 10s or 2 x 12s. Manufacturer Support: N/A. The Wow Factor: It's not UN-attractive, but it's not overly attractive either. What's most interesting is 100W worth of EL34s for a great price. Overall: I'm always looking for inexpensive ways to extend the palette. It's not about finding a silver bullet solution, but to have a range of tools to choose from depending on the situation. I use 100W so infrequently that it makes no sense for me to invest in a high price boutique head. I did make that investment for a MAZ-18, right in the sweet spot of the power I like best for small clubs. That amp is a tone machine, no doubt, and I'll end up buying one of his Route 66s also. But I just found one of those leftover Vietnamese-made Crate Palomino 30 W combos with one 12" Celestion in it (I'm guessing the Model Seventy-80 but not certain.) Not the same as the MAZ-18 exactly, but hey! I'll gig with the Crate just in case some dork spills beer my way. Like the Crate to the Z-amp, the Windsor head does most of the job a boutique head would do for a mere fraction of the money. I like that idea. That's a perfect example of the 80-20 Rule: get 80 percent there for 20 percent of the cost. Cool by me. The only thing one has to watch is that reliability stuff -- some manufacturers have been horrible in that regard. But Peavey has always been solid, so I feel I can trust their product maybe a little more than the well-known German-based cost leader.

"Peavey Windsor amp head"
Sound: I love and play late 70's style of rock and roll, Led Zep, AC/DC, Cheap Trick. I have a Fender Strat and a Gibson Les Paul, but the guitar of choice for this amp is the Les Paul. I got this amp used from a friend and I have it hooked up to 2 15inch bass speaker cabinet. The sound is probably a little darker and deeper than a regular cabinet but i really like it. Feature: For a one channel amp you can get some pretty great sounds but there all gonna be a least a little overdriven, its hard to get a pure clean sound, I have another amp for that. The more pre-amp the more distortion, but not metal distortion, distortion with tone! I like the a/b power setting better, and I love the resonance for that low end growl if I'm just jamming by myself. Ease of Use: Super easy, just play with it and find your tones. Quality: Had it for about 6 months,no problems so far, but I have lots of Peavey products, and there all reliable. Value: I have played the real Marshall 80's era amp and I actually think this amp has better tone and distortion range. It also has a deeper fuller sound than my Peavey valve king 212, but only one channel so not as versatile. So if you play mostly 60's to 80's style of rock you'll like this amp. Manufacturer Support: No need to call them so far, but if I have problems I take it back to my music store, which is a authorized Peavey dealer and they always stand behind there products. The Wow Factor: Some people get all excited about brand names, Fender, Marshall, but I'm sold on Peavey's for the sound, price and quality. They are like the little brother that no one pays attention to. Give them a try you'll be impressed. Overall: I love this amp! The warm tube sound, and the kick ass volume you can get from this amp can't be beat.
Style of Music: mostly 60's 70's and 80's style rock

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
